Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong repaid his Malaysian counterpart Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s hospitality when he hosted the latter in Singapore for one day on Wednesday.

The two had met in Putrajaya in April.

Lee also pledged to continue to cooperate and strengthen ties with Malaysia. Recalling his visit to Putrajaya for the Leaders’ Retreat last April, Lee said Najib was a great host.

"Outside formal meetings, we enjoyed Musang King durian, and cruised around Putrajaya Lake. I was happy to return the favour yesterday (Wednesday) when PM Najib visited us.

"PM Najib and I launched the first overseas Agrobazaar Malaysia branch together at Sultan Gate. The idea had come up during our April retreat. The Agrobazaar will be a one-stop centre for Malaysian agro-based products, including of course durians!,” he said in his Facebook post yesterday.

After giving Najib a quick tour of Singapore's Sports Hub and National

Stadium, Lee said he then took his guests for dinner.

"We had dinner at My Briyani House. We all enjoyed the meal, especially when my guests found out that the chefs were from Johor," he added. – Bernama, August 29, 2014.

Malaysia must leverage on Singapore to be a fully developed country.  Don't follow Mahathir's way of treating Singapore as a competitor.  Instead, do use Singapore as a facilitator and an alliance in business and e****mic development.  A win-win scenario please.
